There I was yesterday, catching up on the blogs I follow, when I saw this post over at Dale’s blog. Long time readers might recognise Dale as being the most prolific commenter here, and also supplied the script for Boy Wonders Part 2. He has a good thing going with skits using action figures but the latest one I linked to . . . * sigh * . . . he’s using a Lego character, and I had to respond . . .
Power Girl’s right – Hal is an idiot.
Hope you like it, Dale!
So, it’s 1975 once more and the Justice League is fighting the Injustice League of Earth Two. Or the Injustice Gang. Or the Injustice Society. Or some bunch of villains that’s teamed up together and called their group the Injustice Something Or Other.
As always, the groups fight each other one on one:
Hawkman’s legs are being tied together by the Huntress; the Wizard’s thrown a huge banana in the path of the Flash; Green Arrow’s been blinded by the Shade; Batman’s been blinded by Icicle; Aquaman has (somehow) been distracted by the Gambler; and Black Canary is being attacked by Sportsmaster.
Let’s take a closer look at that last one, shall we?
Black Canary has stayed still long enough for Sportsmaster to draw a three part target on her belly in to which he’s ready to throw a dart.
Sportsmaster has no super speed powers, no ability to do that quickly – although all credit to the guy for doing a very good job left handed – and yet Black Canary is just standing there, letting him do that, instead of either blasting him with her canary cry or using one of her Judo moves
Or even just kicking him in the balls, which might be more appropriate for the Sportsmaster.
Man, heroes were so much more polite and accommodating in the 70s.
He’s the only one not bothered by Green Arrow’s chilli recipe – and I’m loving J’onn’s reaction!
I enjoy cooking and like a spicy chilli myself, so maybe I’ll try this myself if I could get hold of the equivalent of the California and Gebhardt chilli powder . . .
Catching up with comic news, I came across this first look at the Dominators appearing in the Flash/Supergirl/Arrow/Legends of Tomorrow crossover.
There’s a few glimpses throughout the trailer and I snagged the following close-up (click to enlarge):
The bright yellow skin and large caste circles on their heads appear to have gone, not to mention the green robes, but they’ve still got those spiky teeth.
I’ve never really been a fan of Arrow but I think I’ll be tuning in to catch all the parts of this story.
